The Labyrinth

The Labyrinth

A GIFT TO THE COMMUNITY
from

Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church &
Mount Calvary Episcopal Church

The Labyrinth is located at Mount Calvary Episcopal Church
125 25th Street North, Camp Hill, Pennsylvania

What is a Labyrinth?

Dating back at least 4,000 years, Labyrinths are a natural guide to an inner spiritual journey.  As one prayerfully and physically walks toward the center, so the mind examines deeply the heart and soul opening a path to God’s will.  Through reflection, discernment and enlightenment, the Spirit guides footsteps while the mind and soul  are refreshed and re-energized equipping for the challenges that await.

Use the Labyrinth for...

  • Deepening Spirituality

  • Self reflection

  • Relaxation

  • Hope and direction

Labyrinths may also be used to:

  • Address specific concerns (Intentional)

  • Offer prayer for others (Intercessory)

  • Meditate on a specific passage or word from scripture

  • Pray repeatedly, as in the Jesus Prayer
    (Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me…)

  • Universal prayer for world peace (Let Peace prevail on Earth!)

The Journey

Moving inward is a time to cast doubt, let go of worries, and seek a peaceful state of mind.  The labyrinth’s center is a place to be open and receptive.  Pray, meditate, or let the tears flow.  Cleanse your soul.  When you depart from the center, review and reflect as you retrace your steps.  This is a time to gain direction, comfort, and to restore your mind and spirit.

In the Labyrinth you can:

  • Have a thoughtful walk, a sacred journey, or a spiritual dance.

  • Use one prayer or mantra

  • Ask one question repeatedly

  • Just listen to God

  • Cast off worldly concerns and fears

  • Be open to hearing God’s voice

  • Stroll with your soul

  • Let your heart and mind be opened

  • Go to a deeper place

  • Find peace and comfort

When you enter the labyrinth you may pray,

God, may You bless this sacred path that it may become an avenue to You and an aid in our time of prayer together.  
Amen.

When you leave the center of the labyrinth you may pray,

“God, you search out our path and are acquainted with all our ways.”
“Show us the path into life – for in Your presence there is fullness of joy.”
Amen

(Psalm 139:3 and Psalm 16:1)
